even though it was long, it didn't feel long because it didn't really have any points where you're like, "ok, let's get this going here." you were entertained throughout the whole movie.

Visually the best, the message though was unbelievably offensive and retarded.

Quote by Twist of fate
Yo James Cameron, I'm real happy for you, and imma let you finish, but I have the best avatar of all time!


I actually sometimes gigglingly think sometimes that the women on UG stand up on their chairs at the computer, press their pussies agains the screen, and imagine your avatar licking them.

Avatar cartoon > Avatar movie.

I honestly can't believe that it took the second all-time spot. It was a good movie, but it was waaaaay not that good.

Please, do explain what offended you. And how it was in any way not intelligent.

Thanks.

It was offending in the way that what the private army did to the natives basically is what every so-called 'developed' country in this world has tried to do, gain wealth at the cost of lesser developed countries by force.


And am I the only one who found it extremely obvious that the na'vi are based on africans? (tall, slender, percussive language, hunting styles etc)

Sure! and if you didn't like my use of the word retarded, I apologise for that.

I didn't like how Jake Sully's obvious defection and betrayal of his home planet and race was considered the 'good guy move.' I didn't like how the apparent culture of the Na'vi was considered an obvious exemption from any outside contact, especially when the humans wanted the Unobtainium (obnoxious name) and they of course were not there in the first place to wage war of any kind. And I thought it was unintelligent in story design, for example, why the humans would a.) lose the battle agains the united Na'vi and b.) that they would give up then and not send a larger army or just explode the planet.

It was supposed to be Nature prevailing over the always evil Corporation. That part I agreed with. Mainly because I just have a natural wariness of corporations and what they do to turn a profit.

Unobtainium was a stupid name. Agreed. I also thought it was horribly retarded that they had to destroy this whole huge complex just because it was the largest reserve of the stuff within 200 miles. TWO HUNDRED MILES. On an entire fucking moon? Really? Give me a break.

Not sending more troops made sense to me though, as it took six years to get from Earth to Pandora. Not like they could just airdrop some more in a day or two.

i might not have been in a good mood when watching the movie, but judging by the cost, i thought it was the most boring movie ever. i mean, i still can't believe how people are amazed with the so called "messages" in the movie. FOR GOD'S SAKES where have people been living for the last century? Did you never think of our materialistic hunger and human being a vicious animal before? Do you need a dum f***** movie to realise, after all this time?

It wasn't even really nature, it's not like the trees got up and started swiping helicopters out of the air. Even so, I found the whole treachery is good/technology is evil/people who like money are evil thing so played out and wrong. As for the airdropping thing, I'm also skeptical it would take that long, considering their technology.

Effects were cool, but I was alittle disappointed because of all the hype. The story was, in my opinion, decent at best. Definitely not worth the $13 I spent at the theater, and certaintly not deserving of the spot it has as the second hightest grossing movie of all-time.
If it were socially acceptable, I would drape myself in velvet.

I'm pretty sure that was illustrated by the part where the animals start coming in to help fight the helicopters.

Even so, I found the whole treachery is good/technology is evil/people who like money are evil thing so played out and wrong.

Fair enough.

As for the airdropping thing, I'm also skeptical it would take that long, considering their technology.

It said the trip took something like six years right at the beginning of the movie.

pretty entertaining, due to graphics and effects. Scenario wasn't that impressive, especially considering that Cameron had been writing it for a significant amount of time. As someone mentioned, the plot was a bit too contrived, Also, elements of life on Pandora and the culture of Na'vi was irrational. For ****ing sake those birds flying around Pandora would like to develop a way to bond with Na'vi?
#32
I didn't see the movie, but assuming the humans were defeated, it would've been nice to see them pull a warhammer 40K and virus bomb/fire storm the whole planet.

That stuff is brutal.

The only good thing about this film was the special effects and the planet they created. The story, acting and dialogue was diabolical.

I honestly have no idea how other people love it so much. Then again everyone has different opinions and would consider the movies I like to be shit.

To call it the best film of the decade or whatever I think is ridiculous though.

They were clearly not based specifically on Africans, though you could argue that. Cameron himself has said that they are based on the Native Americans, who also fashioned primitive spear and arrow type weapons and had percussive musical instruments. Any unadvanced (technologically) society begins this way. And this is to prove a point IN FAVOR of undeveloped civilizations. The message of the movie is clearly the ills of technological advancement and the higher greatness of nature's own "technology." It is a very anti-military, anti-oppressive gov't film, in favor of nature and its beings. How could this be construed as offensive?

I would simply say that the use of the word 'retard' seems to indicate a lack of more intelligent alternatives of word choice. It didn't actually offend me.

In regards to the film, Jake Sully saw the ills of a race of people who, in the face of a dying Earth, continue to defile their legacy with capitalism and greed. He begins through his interactions with the Na'vi to understand the inherent wills of nature and evolution that occur all around us. The humans obviously wouldn't opt to simply destroy the entire planet because the obliteration of the Na'vi was never their actual goal. They simply wanted the rare element that resided within the borderline-mystical world. The fact that Jake Sully defected is seen as a "Good Guy" move is because of the audience's (at least for me) view of his actions was generally favorable. Were I in his position, I would have done just as he had done, knowing that my actions against the deteriorating human race were to stop the destruction of a young and ... basically, better race. Better in terms of their understanding of the universe, and their willingness to observe and care for, rather than destroy, their environment for the sake of monetary gain.
